MTN has improved the value of its internet data plans by introducing new plans and increasing the data allowances available in existing ones. Several other MTN Data Plan options are now available to you. There are low-cost options for novices, mobile phone internet users, and medium- and high-volume data users.
MTN, like many other networks, also offers shorter-term subscriptions of one day or one week’s duration. The cheapest monthly Package remains unchanged at 1000 Naira for 1.5GB (it used to be 1GB years back) and 1,200 Naira for 2GB.
The newly launched 3GB plan from MTN Cheap Browsing is an even better deal at only 1,500 Naira. Listed below are the specifics, so please refer to them.

MTN supports 4G LTE; some good smartphones are supported on the MTN network.
24/7 internet browsing is great as you can browse anytime you want. MTN Night browsing seems to have been suspended, at least for now. MTN Weekend data plan, which used to be active throughout the weekend from 9 pm on Friday to 6 am on Monday, seems to have suffered the same fate.
Weekend browsing and Night browsing made sense in the days of fixed Internet, but will the mobile always be in the world? Both data plans seem lame.
MTN demoed 5G in Nigeria in November 2019.
Activating Internet browsing on MTN
MTN internet services can be accessed with an internet-enabled mobile phone, an Internet modem, or an Internet router. You can browse with the mobile phone directly or use it as a modem to connect your desktop or laptop to the Internet using a data cable/USB or Bluetooth.
To get your 4G/3G/3.5G/GPRS settings automatically, text SETTINGS to 3888 on an MTN Nigeria mobile phone.
You can also manually configure your mobile phone using the following settings.
Account name: MTN GPRS
Access point name (APN): web.gprs.mtnnigeria.net
IP Address: 10.199.212.2
Port: 8080 (for HTML) or 9201 (for WAP)
Port 8080 is recommended except if your mobile phone supports only WAP.
Buying your internet browsing devices from an MTN service centre will be pre-loaded with MTN internet settings.
The 3.5G FastLink USB modem costs around N5,000 from MTN and is also compatible with 3G/EDGE/GPRS. According to Ads on the MTN website, it offers 6 months of free data, though we cannot confirm the limits.
MTN also offers a portable Wi-Fi router that enables you to share your internet access with up to five Wi-Fi devices within a 10m range. The MTN Mi-Fi portable Wi-Fi hotspot costs N21,000 with a 3GB free internet browsing bundle. To activate your MTN-free Mi-Fi bundle, text MIFI to 131.
MTN’s 1.5GB Data Plan
Access the Internet Nonstop for 30 Days with N1,000 and the MTN 1.5GB Data plan (formerly 100MB, 200MB, 260MB, 1GB). There is a cap of 1.5 GB for the browsing package. The MTN 1.5 GB package is perfect for mobile web surfing.
Downloading Opera Mini/mobile or another cloud-based data-compression browser, such as UC Browser or UC Mini, is recommended for use on mobile devices with this Plan.
Send an SMS of 106 to 131 to upgrade to the 1.5GB data plan. You can also use this Package on your laptop or desktop computer, but unless you have a sluggish internet connection and only use the Internet on rare occasions, you shouldn’t expect it to last more than a week.
Turning off the automatic OS and Antivirus updates is an effective way to conserve data transfer. When updating antivirus software, set the schedule to once daily (24 hours) or once every 1440 minutes.
MTN’s 20GB Data Package
If you prefer to use your laptop or desktop computer for internet access, the finest MTN Data plan is the one you can get. Prepaid MTN customers can get unlimited (always on) Internet for 30 days for 5,000 NGN.
The MTN Plan has a cap of 20GB per month (it used to be 5GB, 10GB, 11GB, and 15GB). Send the message “116 to 131” to switch to the 30-day Plan. You may also enjoy 4GB of free YouTube streaming every night.
Before moving, you should have at least N5,000 in your bank account. If the migration is successful, MTN will deduct N5,000 from your account. If you use a lot of data and are in an area with fast 4G or 3G/HSDPA coverage, the MTN 15GB plan is for you.
MTN Data Plan, 40GB
MTN offers yet another attractive plan, the 40GB Data Plan. If you want to create a hotspot in your home or office, this MTN package is ideal.
The hotspot may link up many electronic gadgets, including cellphones, laptops, desktop computers, set-top boxes, and more. For a one-time payment of 10,000 NGN, you can enjoy always-on Internet for a full month.
Previously, the MTN Data Plan cap was 22GB, and now it’s 25GB per month. Text ‘117’ to ‘131’ to switch to this 30-day Package.
Before moving, you should have at least N10,000 in your bank account. MTN will immediately deduct N10,000 from your account if the migration is successful. If you use a lot of data and are in an area with fast 4G LTE or 3G/HSDPA coverage, the MTN plan with 40GB is your best bet.
MTN’s 200GB Data Plan
If you watch many online videos or frequently download music, this new addition is your best data plan. A firm should also use this strategy; the office is a perfect place to do it. Workers can use Wi-Fi once a router is installed.
With data rollover support, you may obtain 200GB for 30,000 Naira (valid for 30 days) without worrying about whether you’ll use it all. Any unused data will be carried over to your next subscription when you renew, regardless of the Plan you first subscribed to.
If you find that 75 or 120 GB of data per month is not enough, this Plan is for you.
MTN’s 24-hour data plan
MTN offers a daily data plan that may be used to browse the web for 24 hours straight. Subscribers to this internet package can pay daily for 150MB of high-capacity internet access.
If you want to use the Internet daily, you’ll have to pay for this service. MTN offers 24-hour internet access for N350 daily, with 1 GB of data.
Customers who only use cyber cafes for a few hours each week will be interested in the 24-hour Plan, especially if they have a computer at home or work.
Although this Plan is inexpensive and easy to use, it may not meet your needs if you require access at all hours of the day and night. Only MTN prepaid customers can access this internet service.
When you wish to upgrade to MTN’s daily data plan so you can surf the web whenever you want, just text 155 to 131. You’ll get access to the Internet for 24 hours, but it will only be for 1GB.
Before making the switch, you’ll need N350 in your account balance. After a successful migration, N350 will be debited from your MTN balance.
That’s it on MTN Internet Bundles. All the MTN data plans are now available for subscription on a smartphone or an MTN Mifi or modem.
